Abstract

Practice placements account for 50% of the educational experience for community nurses who undergo both an 8 month and 10 week placement leading to a specialist community nurse qualification. This paper importantly addresses the question “What are the most important factors for postgraduate specialist community nursing students in practice placement?”

This study is part of a larger inter-professional project that researched excellence within postgraduate nursing, dental, and general practitioner practice placements. Its objective was to offer insight and guidance to trainers and training practices about this under-researched topic.
